Fourth newsletter of the LowInputBreeds project

On the island of Crete, Greece, farmed sheep belong to the local breed Sfakia

On the island of Crete, Greece, farmed sheep belong to the local breed Sfakia. In the newsletter, LowInputBreeds partners Alexandros Stefanakis and Smaragda Sotiraki report about sheep farming on the Greek island.

The fourth newsletter of the LowInputBreeds project reports on the successful first project symposium which took place in March in Wageningen, the Netherlands, focussing on ethical issues in animal breeding.

Furthermore the newsletter contains an article on small ruminant production systems in Crete, and the traits required in order to improve production efficiency and product quality in traditional low-input dairy sheep production systems. 

And like every newsletter, we report progress in the four LowInputBreeds subprojects.
